Solidarity with the Struggle of North American People!

We repudiate the cowardly murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis’s police officers, another racist act in the heart of a world imperialist power. This event is added to the countless number of killings of people of colour and the Afro-descendent population in the United States which has been perpetuated since the days of slavery and hasn’t yet stopped.

Racism, a structural element in capitalist society, especially in North American capitalism, is unfortunately intact, but resistance and fighting spirit from people of color and poor people arises in response. Only solidarity and mutual aid will allow us to resist.

Many liberals and other Democrats see Trump as the main problem facing the U.S. Therefore their focus is on defeating him in the next election (or impeachment). They focus on the electoral system and hope for salvation through government action. I disagree. Trump is a major problem, but he is the culmination of years of political and economic development, and is related to similar politics in other countries. The fight against Trumpism requires a non-electoral and militant program.

Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation has received word about the white supremacist, fascist violence committed in Charlottesville today. We are deeply saddened by the loss of our comrade in struggle. Our hearts and minds go out to their loved ones.

We stand in solidarity with anti-racist activists in Charlottesville today, their families, the IWW and DSA members present, and all those involved in the struggle against the rising tide of fascism worldwide.

Fotografía de Los Mártires de Chicago de 1887

Este documento fue escrito en el 2010 como introducción al libro "Los Orígenes Libertarios del Primero de Mayo: de Chicago a América Latina" (Ed. Quimantú, Hombre y Sociedad, Libre Iniciativa), volumen que recogía contribuciones históricas sobre los orígenes del Primero de Mayo como día de protesta obrera y sus vínculos con el movimiento anarquista de comienzos del siglo XX en América Latina*. Esta introducción ponía los sucesos de Chicago de 1886 en el contexto de un movimiento de matriz libertaria, obrero, que se convirtió en una amenaza para la clase capitalista en los EEUU, y explora cómo este evento logró capturar el espíritu de toda una época de luchas y cómo estos sucesos fueron parte de un movimiento internacional muchísimo más amplio. Al difundir este documento, espero no sólo hacer un homenaje a estos luchadores de hace más de un siglo, sino también entregar algunas reflexiones sobre su experiencia histórica concreta, en la esperanza que puedan ser de utilidad para las nuevas generaciones de luchadores.

textDonald Trump: A New Emperor of the Lumpenproletariat? Sep 25 12:18 by Clyde W. Barrow 0 comments

In The Dangerous Class: The Concept of the Lumpenproletariat (University of Michigan Press, forthcoming 2020), I argue that US President Donald Trump should be understood as a “Prince of the Lumpenproletariat.” The question that will confront us on November 3rd and long afterward is whether Donald Trump will become “Emperor of the Lumpenproletariat.” These terms are taken from Karl Marx’s 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, where he applied them to Louis Bonaparte III. I argue that Trump has followed the script of the 18th Brumaire, which is the story of the exceptional rise to power of a lumpenproletariat organized and led by an authoritarian populist.

Racial oppression is rooted in capitalism. White people are not oppressed as white people, but do suffer from capitalism in other ways. White anti-racism cannot only be based on moral values but must also be related to their own oppressions caused by capitalism.

It also puts some facts before the readers and question them that who really in a long-term serves our struggle?

L'omicidio di Floyd non è un episodio isolato. Lo scorso anno la polizia americana uccise 1099 persone, una parte considerevole delle quali era nera. Il 99% di queste uccisioni è rimasta impunita, un tasso allarmante, che nel continente americano è paragonabile solo a quello della Colombia, a dimostrazione del fatto che la violenza poliziesca – lungi dall'essere un'anomalia – è accettata dall'establishment statunitense, democratico o repubblicano che sia.

Μια αναρχική άποψη για την εξέγερση στις ΗΠΑ ενάντια στις αστυνομικές ενέργειες και τον ρατσισμό. - Αυτές οι διαμαρτυρίες αποτελούν μια εξέγερση. Είναι απόδειξη ότι ο πληθυσμός των ΗΠΑ δεν είναι για πάντα παθητικός και ηθικοποιημένος. Ότι υπάρχει μεγάλη οργή και δίψα για δικαιοσύνη και ελευθερία. Βέβαια όλο αυτό δεν θα οδηγήσει σε άμεση επα-νάσταση. Αλλά αυξάνει την πιθανότητα.

Floyd'un öldürülmesi tek seferlik bir olay değil. Geçen yıl 1,099 kişi ABD polisi tarafından öldürüldü, bunların hatırı sayılır bir kısmı siyahtı. Bu cinayetlerin %99'u tam dokunulmazlık alanında –endişe verici bir dokunulmazlık oranı, yalnızca kıtadaki Kolombiya gibileriyle rekabet ediyor- bu da norm dışı sayılmaktan uzak polis şiddetine ABD yönetici ve elitleri tarafından nasıl göz yumulduğunu gösteriyor.

Em 25 de maio de 2020, George Floyd, um homem afro-americano de 46 anos de idade, foi assassinado por asfixia executada por um policial branco do Departamento de Polícia de Minneapolis (estado de Minnesota). O assassino foi o oficial de polícia Derek Chauvin, permanecendo por 8 minutos e 46 segundos sobre o pescoço da vítima. Os demais policiais, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng e Thomas K. Lane foram cúmplices, sendo que Kueng ajudou a imobilizar o “suspeito”. O crime de George, tentar comprar cigarros com uma nota de 20 dólares, supostamente falsa. Para termos uma ideia de comparação, Donald Trump, o próprio, é um empresário picareta que quebrou seis vezes, entre 1991 e 2009 e “espertamente” não deixou na reta escapando das “leis”. Com bons advogados e excelentes tributaristas, o sistema de Justiça do Império é perfeito para o andar de cima. Desde então os EUA mergulharam numa panela de pressão, começando pela própria Minneapolis (ver cujo estopim foi mais esse assassinato de outro homem negro. Neste artigo, faço uma modesta reflexão de contatos com as esquerdas daquele país que ainda é a potência hegemônica – embora decadente - sobre a nossa América Latina.

El asesinato de Floyd no es un hecho fortuito. El año pasado, 1099 personas fueron asesinadas por la policía en Estados Unidos, de los cuales muchísimos eran negros. 99% de estos asesinatos están en la más escandalosa impunidad. Una tasa alarmante que compite con las cifras de otras “lumbreras” de los derechos humanos como Colombia. Esto demuestra que la violencia policial, lejos de ser una anomalía, es aupada por el establecimiento de los EEUU. Por todo el establecimiento, tanto por republicanos como por demócratas.

The murder of Floyd is not a once-off incident. Last year 1,099 people were killed by the US police, of which a sizeable proportion are black. 99% of these murders remain in absolute impunity –an alarming impunity rate only rivalled by the likes of Colombia in the continent, which goes to demonstrate how police violence, far from an anomaly, is condoned by the US establishment. By all of it, whether Republican or Democrat. [Castellano] [Türkçe] [Italiano]

Repudiamos el asesinato de George Floyd a manos de la policía de Minneapolis, en otro acto racista en el seno de la potencia imperialista mundial. Este acto se suma a los incontables asesinatos de población negra en los EEUU, que se perpetran desde la época de la esclavitud y que no han cesado hasta nuestros días. En el gobierno de Obama fueron decenas los asesinatos de jóvenes negros/as que hicieron recordar hechos similares llevados a cabo en los años 50 y 60 del siglo XX. La respuesta fue una rápida irrupción del movimiento negro a lo largo y ancho del país, del mismo modo en que se desarrollan en estos momentos amplias manifestaciones que demuestran que la población está harta de la violencia e impunidad policial. Fue incendiada por los/as manifestantes la jefatura de policía de Minneapolis y atacados varios vehículos, hechos de acción directa se llevan a cabo en diversas ciudades con enfrentamientos con la policía, e incluso Trump ha dado orden de que el Ejército salga a la calle. El racismo, elemento estructural en la sociedad capitalista, especialmente en la norteamericana, está intacto lamentablemente, pero también la resistencia y lucha del pueblo negro y de los pobres del norte.

Nous condamnons le meurtre de George Floyd par la police de Minneapolis, marquant un acte raciste de plus au sein de la première puissance impérialiste mondiale. Cet acte vient s'ajouter aux innombrables meurtres dans la population noire aux États-Unis, qui ont été perpétrés depuis l'époque de l'esclavage et n'ont pas cessé jusqu'à ce jour. Sous l'administration Obama, des dizaines de meurtres de jeunes femmes et de jeunes homme noires ont rappelé les événements similaires des années 1950 et 1960.

Wir verurteilen den feigen Mord an George Floyd durch die Hände der Polizeibeamt*innen von Minneapolis scharf. Er stellt einen weiteren rassistischen Akt im Herzen einer imperialistischen Weltmacht dar. Dieses Ereignis reiht sich ein in die zahllosen Morde an People of Color und der afro-stämmigen Bevölkerung in den Vereinigten Staaten, die seit den Tagen der Sklaverei weitergehen und immer noch nicht aufgehört haben. Während der Regierung Obamas gab es Dutzende von Morden an jungen Schwarzen, was an ähnliche rassistische Zeiten in den 1950er und 1960er Jahren erinnert.

**Many people regard anarchism and socialism as contradictory programs. This is based on the conception of "socialism" as state ownership of the economy. Yet historically, anarchists have regarded this program as "state socialism" or "authoritarian socialism." They have rejected such views in favor of "anarchist-socialism" or "libertarian socialism." This concept of anarchism as a variety of socialism remains important today in opposition to pro-capitalist "libertarianism" and to "democratic socialism"--that is, reformist state socialism.**
